The Stair Society, Scotland's premier legal history society since its foundation in 1934, has set up a page on Facebook, the world's largest social networking site.
The Society has had a website for several years and has also recently had its main publications series (up to volume 53) reproduced in a Hein Online library. This will be accessible to members via the Society website in the near future. Meanwhile, hard copy publications continue to appear – most recently the three-volume Scotland under Jus Commune edited by Gero Dolezalek, formerly Professor of Civil Law at Aberdeen University.
The Facebook page currently has eight fans. The news that the Stair Society has joined is a major boost for Facebook, which has recently been the subject of public criticism for the perceived inadequacies of its protection of individual privacy.
